Common Types of Medical Eye Issues
Cataracts are a serious health condition. In fact, they are the number one cause of blindness in the world. However, they are easily treatable. Some of the common symptoms of this condition include hazy, increased glare at night, difficulty with details, and light sensitivity. In most cases as the cataract matures, surgery is the most logical solution.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration is a condition in which the part of the retina responsible for detailed vision begins to deteriorate. It usually presents around 60 years and above. Fortunately, several remedies such as cessation of smoking, UV protection and AREDS eye vitamins can slow or even arrest this disorder.
Glaucoma is a painless, chronic, but a potentially devastating condition. It impacts your peripheral vision first before moving on to the central vision. We always screen for glaucoma during an annual checkup, which is one reason not to skip these routine examinations. The treatments for glaucoma can be as mild as drops or as significant as surgery.
